What Happened: September 2019

What went down in September at Scimitar? Well, here’s a mini-recap for you!

Simplyhealth Great North Run 2019

First up, we have to start with our involvement with the World’s most popular half marathon!

For the second year running, we were delighted to be the official merchandise partners for the Great North Run, as well as all of the other localised events (such as the Great Scottish & Great Bristol Run).

57,000 people took part in the event, and we were on hand at the merchandise stand with our range of officially branded recycled sportswear, leisurewear and accessories.

Check out this video from The Running Channel, which looks at the thoughts of a runner mile-by-mile! There’s plenty of Scimitar charity and club running vests on display, too!

Recycled Sportswear

With our introduction of the UK’s first range of custom recycled sportswear, there’s no resting for our team of skilled designers and garment technologists.

While we are currently able to offer recycled sportswear for our range of running vests, technical t-shirts and cycling jerseys, there’s a lot more to our product range.

The team will now be putting the effort in to introduce new products and ranges to our 100% recycled range.

Sales Brochures

With the launch of the new website, we’re excited to be able to offer sector-specific brochures for our (existing & potential) clients to download and view easily.

The team are finishing up the details of the brochures, but they will be available to download soon. Keen an eye on our Facebook, Twitter & Instagram profiles for the very latest.

If you would like a copy of our brochure emailed to you, pop us an email to sales@scimitarsports.com with the type of products you are interested in.

Rotherham Titans

The rugby season is back underway, and it’s time for the Rotherham Titans to put last season’s erratic form behind them and charge for a return to the Greene King IPA Championship.

A tough trip to Rosslyn Park saw Rotherham lose the opening day fixture on the 7th September 38-19. It was a spirited effort against a very good outfit, who had former England International prop Paul Doran-Jones on the bench. Level at half-time, it was a result that the Titans will certainly be looking to build on.

Next up was the visit of Sale FC to fortress Clifton Lane. Looking to overturn the previous week’s result, the Titans bounced back properly with a comfortable 31-20 victory in the sun, in front of 687 fans.

The 21st of September saw the Titans make a 294-mile trip to Plymouth Albion where they were narrowly beaten 33-27, while the 28th was the visit of Cambridge for a much needed 22-17 victory at Clifton Lane.

On, we honourably mention cancer charities we work with that are indefinitely trying to make the world a better place for us all. @pancreaticcanuk | @breastcancernow | @bloodwise | @neccr_fund | @helen_rollason_cancer_charity | @teensunitefightingcancer | @prostatecanceruk & the many, many more. Thank you?
